    I'll trade you for mine... I always wanted one without checkering.

    Mine's actually a 9422M, .22 WMR. Apparently manufactured in 1973. Not a scratch on it. :)

    I like to use them to hunt with

    This one is in .243

    the biggest problem with these (other than the trigger) is the skinny little barrel...if you dont give it enough time to cool down between shots you would swear your scope is lose.

    I sold my BLR in 308... someone tried to lighten the trigger, got light primer strikes now and then. Brazilian ammo wouldn't work at all.

    After a while, got my Winchester 88 in 308 (see above)... much mo' bettah!

    I love guns without that dang checkering. Sleek and curvy like a beautiful woman.

    I avoid checkering on levers whenever possible. Duke didn't have no checkering. Neither did Lucas. ;)

    My 1973 Marlin 336 in .35 Remington, 1-3 x 20 scope.

    Oink.

    It is classical art, ...so to speak.

    I call this composition "30AS on sink":

    Oops. I do have one with checkering.

    Two levers with canoe-accident-ready finishes:

    And, Duke wasn’t shooting .500 caliber rifles, so checkering and drop in stock made no difference. Makes a damn big difference shooting 400-500 gr bullets at 2000 fps or better........ LOL. Make mine with plenty of checkering to hold on to, and near as possible to zero drop,, straight pistol grip stock, straight in line with the bore as possible. Duke can do what Duke is going to do, Michael is going to do that........ HEH HEH..........

    I was amazed at how well the zero drop worked in Billy's rifle. :cool:

    I have had Marlin Guide guns done in 50 B&M AK..... and the pistol grip Marlin Version, and of course the M71s.. The M71s and the pistol grip Marlins are far straighter stocks, in line with the bore, and less drop in the rear. The Guide gun has a hell of a lot of drop in the rear. There is a world of difference in muzzle flip and felt recoil in the two guns. Big bore guns our off hand is the controlling hand, that hand pulls the gun tight into your shoulder and holds the gun tight in place. The more drop there is in that stock, even pulling in tight, that muzzle flips up and not much you can do with that. The pistol grip versions are more straight in line with the bore and have far less muzzle flip, thus less felt recoil as well. You have much more control of the gun this way.

    The photo above shows some of this, but when holding the two different stock designs in hand it is very noticeable and apparent.

    And as for the checkering, that stuff on the big bores keeps your working hand and knuckles from getting the bark knocked off of them during recoil.... LOL......... I have had guns, no checkering, and had to wrap my trigger finger with duct tape to keep the skin intact..........

    My 1903 version of the 94 Winchester. Incredibly smooth action with almost no trigger slack and a real crisp release. No rear blade sight. 20190413_130318 (1).jpg

    20190413_145319.jpg Remembered this one later. Model 65, manufactured in March 1932, but not assembled until 1937. It's in .218Bee and was my grandfather's deer rifle.
